Let The Journey Begin

Aug 20, 2020

This week, Hilary and Jason go back in time to the George Floyd protests going on across the country and sit down with musician Julian Ness. Julian discusses how butting heads with his father created a good deal of teenage angst within himself, to the point where whatever his father would tell him to do, he would try to do the opposite. This conflict came to a boiling point when Julian was kicked out of the house at age 16 and began moving from one friend’s house to another. However, as he became more immersed in drugs and alcohol, these same friends wanted nothing to do with him and Julian explained that “even the drug addicts wanted nothing to do with me.” After spending a year in jail at the age of 18, Julian describes how his moment of clarity came in an overdose experience that was different than the rest. Rather than wanting to continue drinking and drugging, this particular time was different; he wanted to get help. Today, Julian has completely restructured his life to aid his sobriety. He stresses how important it was for him to change the people he surrounded himself with and also, discusses how the search for spirituality has helped his journey. Finally, Julian expresses how gratitude is key in maintaining sobriety on a daily basis and his continual quest in helping others with their struggles has made his life more meaningful.
